Welcome to 6th Grade Science!

This class is going to be FUN!  We study many different and interesting aspects of science: water (H2O) quality; testing and conservation, weather and space, energy and chemistry.

During the entire semester we study the scientific method, as it pertains to answering an unknown question. We practice our skills in: Observation, Inquiry   (the question/ what do we want to learn about a topic), Hypothesis,  Research, Experiment, Data, Analysis and Conclusion. These can be tough concepts for kids. Please talk to your child to see what he/she is learning 

We start the year with the scientific method learning vocabulary as we conduct some activities/projects in class.

Our water quality unit is in full swing. We will be going on our water study field trip on October 3! This is an awesome field trip that concludes our water study unit. If you can chaperone this trip, please consider making yourself available for it. It is an all day trip. We try to leave around 9:00 and return around 2:00.

Thank you for your continued support of your child and our school!
